The waves of heat are coming and they’re pretty much unavoidable.

That’s kind of what summertime is all about, the high temperatures and the scorching sun.

Some people love the heat of summer, others aren’t all about it.

For those who would rather stay cool, there are plenty of ways you can beat the heat this season. Twitter will tell you. You may even be in for a few chuckles! Can you #BeatTheHeatIn4Words?
